So originally, I read this article that claimed that the battery in the Tesla launched on the Falcon Heavy would last for about 12 hours after launch. The live video stream was only broadcast for about 4 hours, and indeed, Elon Musk seemed to confirm that perhaps we had received the last picture from Starman on Instagram on Wednesday the 7th, the day after the launch.
But today, I saw an article on the UK's "Express" news site that provided a link to http://www.whereisroadster.com/, which provides current location data of the roadster. This site claims "Coming Soon:...View from Roadster of Earth, Mars". Is this possible? And how are they tracking the roadster's progress? Isn't the battery long dead by now?
Maybe it will be a "simulated view" (like the earlier launch 3D video models), and maybe they are just modeling the projected path, but I'm hoping someone else has more detailed information.
Apparently folks have been busy cataloging and tracking the Roadster. CNN via MSN says astronomers have been using the Horizons database to get the projected location of the Roadster in order to get a final few pictures before it's too far away. You can also search "Roadster" on orbitsimulator.com.
